Hey all, I’m back with a look at the upcoming season for this week’s Anime Sunday. It’s my Most Anticipated Spring 2023 Anime.

Oshi no Ko: I’ll admit the synopsis is what got my attention to this series as I’ve never even heard of it before. It involves an idol that is pregnant going to a rural doctor for help and him dying to a crazy stalker only to be reborn as the baby he was to deliver.  That sounds absolutely bonkers so I’m interested if it’ll deliver. Maybe it will or maybe it won’t, but I’m looking forward to finding out.

Insomniacs After School: This series is about a pair of high school students who have to deal with insomnia, and how they came together through their shared disorder. I’m interested to see if this is any good. We shall see.

Sacrificial Princess and the King of Beasts: This is a fantasy series that details how a king of beasts and demons regularly receives a tribute in the form of a human woman who the rest of humanity gives up as tribute. However, the 99th one is different, and it changes everything. I’m interested to see if this is any good as I’d never heard about this series, although the premise isn’t anything new and in fact is as old as human history.

Honorable Mentions:

Mobile Suit Gundam: The Witch from Mercury 2nd Cour: I am highly anticipating this series returning and am really hopeful it ends on a high note. I enjoy Suletta and Miorine’s relationship and would very much like to see it do well. But we shall see if that happens.

Pokémon: This is the start of a new series with brand new characters since Ash is now retired from being the main character after having been it for over 20 years. Honestly, this is just being mentioned for that sole fact that it’ll be interesting to see if they can make the new characters shine enough to get out of Ash’s shadow.

My Home Hero: This is another series that I’d never heard of, and the premise is interesting from the short synopsis I was able to read. But I have a feeling that it might be a bit darker than I’d prefer so it’s being placed here since I’m not sure I’ll enjoy it. I guess we shall see.
